The global lockdown has certainly changed our lives, but not necessarily for the worse—to some of us, it’s brought out the best of our creativity. One couple decided to use their creativity to express their love for their feline. Jake Lambert and Jessica Atkins created a small art gallery for their cat Richard Parker. Scroll down for Bored Panda‘s interview with Jake Lambert!

Three-year-old Richard Parker is currently housebound due to his unfortunate foot injury. Together with his family—stand-up comedian Jake Lambert and his girlfriend, senior veterinary nurse Jessica Atkins—the cat has been trapped in quarantine for more than two months. The quarantine was clearly too much for the little feline and seeing how bored Richard Parker was, the couple came up with the idea to cheer him up.

“It was my girlfriend Jess’ idea. Our cat Richard Parker hurt his foot so he couldn’t go outside and as we couldn’t because of lockdown, we thought how maybe he’s missing his cat friends, so we made a gallery so he could look at other cats,” Jake Lambert explains to Bored Panda. They created a personal, cat-sized gallery that he can visit and explore amazing artworks inspired by the most famous paintings in the world.

“It took about an hour to make, and he’s spent hours enjoying it,” he says. The gallery features 11 paintings—including such classics as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci and works by Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet—all of them with some funny twists, as you can see cats in each of these paintings. Everything is thought out to the smallest detail as there is a rope barrier to keep the distance from the paintings and also small signs for the visitors—to not take photographs or eat and drink.

“Richard Parker is very sociable and affectionate. He loves to play and always comes and greets us at the front door when we come home. He sleeps on our bed with us and hangs out with us all day. He’s a very cool cat and we’re very lucky. The paintings we used were by Fat Cat Art. Richard Parker has one eye as someone shot him when he was 6 months old (he’s now 3.) We never found out who shot him. But he’s super resilient.”
